Dr. Mario Rivera Bernuy, an endocrinologist, is welcoming new patients at Essentia Health-South University Clinic in Fargo.

“I chose endocrinology as a medical specialty because disorders in our glands can lead to multiple symptoms that may present from head to toe. It is rewarding to see a patient’s improving health when hormone levels are better controlled,” shares Dr. Rivera Bernuy.

Dr. Rivera Bernuy earned his medical degree from Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Lima, Peru. He did his residency in internal medicine at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, N.M. and a fellowship in endocrinology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Rivera Bernuy is board certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

“I am especially interested in thyroid and pituitary diseases as well as diabetes,” says Dr. Rivera Bernuy. “I was awarded the American Thyroid Association Ridgeway Trainee Grant in 2019, I was selected to participate in the Pituitary Society Master Course for fellows in 2020 and I was selected for and currently participating in the American Diabetes Association Focus on Fellows.”
